When thinking of a combination of rolling hills, skyscrapers, and historical homes, these thoughts would probably lead to the city of Markham, Ontario. Markham is a bustling city in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) where heritage meets modern living. When visiting the neighbourhood, it will be easy to find activities to please everyone in a family.

1.Visit Old Railway Stations

Markham GO Station dates back to 1871 making it one of the oldest stations in the city. This is apparent due to its classic design and architecture. While now a community centre, when looking for more of the classic railway and Gothic styled buildings, head to Unionville Go Station. Locust Hill Station is now fittingly apart of the Markham Museum and dates back to 1936 making this a must-see along any journey.

2.Visit the Local Museum

If the railway tour has led to the Markham Museum, it will be worth it to stay a while and learn about the city’s history and culture. The museum is an open-air museum made up of around 30 buildings with gardens to explore. The museum includes permanent and temporary exhibitions including Markham artifacts dating back to 1968.

When you visit a new city, there is plenty to see and do during your entire stay. The best place to start is to visit the local tourist information centre, like the Union Station Tourist Information Centre in Toronto. Not only are there local specialists to answer your questions and provide information on local attractions, they also have access to free city tour guides, maps, and other pamphlets to give you more information about various attractions. In most cases, there is no charge, unless you purchase tickets to a paid-attraction, such as a museum or amusement park. 

While you are at the tourist information centre, ask if there is a self-guided walking tour of the city. You would be surprised to learn in many cities there are, and even include a tour book, complete with a map and information on the sights you can see on the tour. A self-guided tour could have a nominal fee for the book and map.

Already thinking about where you want to go vacationing this year? While foreign travel is certainly an option, consider hitting the Trans-Canada Highway and seeing a bit more of the country. If you have never really taken the time to see what Canada has to offer, then this is certainly a great way to do so. All it takes is a car and some willing friends and you can stop by most of the major Canadian cities as well as many of the best sights in the country. Of course to do many of the cities justice, you should spend more than just a day or two in them. As such, we recommend short term rentals when you are on your great Canadian road trip.
